A Lasting Power of Attorney, otherwise known as an LPA, is a document that allows you to legally appoint someone to make crucial decisions on your behalf. An LPA is usually drawn up (alongside a Will) when a person is fit and well to say who should help them if they are unable to act for themselves or just wish to have some help with property, finance, savings, investments or their general wellbeing in the future.
By obtaining a Lasting Power of Attorney, you can rest assured that regardless of your capability in later years, your matters will be handled by someone you know and trust to do what’s right by you. Here at Bradleys, our trusted Power of Attorney lawyers regularly assist our clients with preparing and registering their LPA, so you can rest assured that no situation is too complex.
While the future is uncertain, the benefit of preparing an LPA in advance is the time and money it saves. Without an LPA, your loved ones may still be able to make decisions on your behalf, but they will have to make an application to the court which will be very time consuming and very costly. Therefore, we recommend that you seek the advice and assistance of one of our specialist Power of Attorney lawyers as early as possible.
Most of our clients find it practical to create this document in conjunction with drafting their Will. If this is something you are interested in, our team are here to help you plan for the future, one step at a time.
